For anyone with any interest in religion. This is not just a book for Bible scholars or the devout. Unlike so many Christian books which exclude sceptics from learning about the bible and religion through unforgiving dogmatism and narrow mindedness, this is an intelligent, broad, honest and crisply written text. Biblical infallibility is swept aside, and a more rewarding and interesting vision of religion is revealed:
"religion in the living, divine soul of man is itself the tree, and texts and scriptures are simply its fruits and flowers and leaves, which may be changed or shed, and yet the tree live on and prosper, bearing other foliage and flowers and fruit, and even in increasing abundance."
